    Rafale Deal in Final Stage, India to Buy 36 Fighter Jets for 7.8 bn Euros

    The much-negotiated Rafale deal with France is in 'final stages' with India set to buy 36 fighter jets for 7.8 billion euros (about Rs 59,000 crore), defence ministry sources said on Friday.

    The deal comes with the clause of delivering 50 per cent offsets, creating business worth at least 3 billion Euros for smaller Indian companies and creating thousands of new jobs in India through the offsets.
    Hope This time we are getting Rafale.

    Why won't they just invest in more PAK FAs?

      Maybe because the PAK FA so far only exists as a small number of prototypes, and the Indian version not at all?

        Only 5 prototypes exist so far and the 6th was canibalised to provide engines after prototype #5 burnt out its engines in an accident.
